Temporarily Abandoned

It was not a good day for the echoes of children at play.

At least not here.

Trader Joe 010

The sounds of summer skin sticking to a sun-warmed slide are many months away,

as is the sound of a young boy’s mom telling him to “be careful!”

A parent’s presence on the adult swing is non-existent.

Though impressions of winter footprints meander through the snow,

it’s been too cold for Johnny and Susie to be outside.

A snow squall makes matters worse.

Temporarily abandoned, the playground is motionless, quiet, without voice.

    You always manage to come up with a new wrinkle on the topic, you clever woman! 🙂 Really well done…

        That’s as may be … but no-one else manages to come up with a different slant, each time! 🙂

        I appreciate your compliment M-R. Must be my strange mind, enhanced by too much caffeine and sugar. :-p

  2. I hope the end of this is in sight, Mary. MTM’s mom is coming down to Mississippi next week to get away from it and help me.
